Art Deco

My route to and from work takes me past an Art Deco building on 11th St SE, just south of Pennsylvania Ave. I love it. It’s totally out of character (most of the structures on that block and, indeed, throughout the Hill neighborhood, were built between 1900-1930 and are most certainly not Art Deco).

It’s just so unique and eye catching and unexpected and it’s one of the highlights of my commute (arguably the only highlight).

Apparently, it was built in 1932 and was originally a funeral home. Now, it’s an apartment building. Wouldn’t it be great to live in that building? At least, wouldn’t it be great if you were in your twenties or early thirties (and maybe you are)?
